Doreen Dufresne, Florida Woman, Tried To Pay Friend To Kill Husband, Police Say

Police in Port Orange, Fla., say a woman confessed that she tried to hire her friend to kill her third husband.

WFTV reports that Doreen Dufresne was arrested for allegedly trying to pay her friend Brandon Parrish $25,000 to murder her estranged husband, Neil Suchy.

Instead, Parrish went to the police.

"I just didn't want to go the rest of my life knowing I could have prevented someone from being killed," Parrish told WFTV.

Police said they do not plan to reopen the case of Dufresne's second husband, whose death was ruled a suicide in 2001 and whose autopsy revealed he had ingested small amounts of anti-freeze over an extended period of time, ABC News reports.

Dufresne's family members told the Daytona Beach News Journal that the accusations were false.

"The whole thing is a mess and a lie," a woman who answered Dufresne's phone told the Journal.

Dufresne and Suchy were married in March, 2010, according to WESH.
